âWe are highly Web-based and we needed a core system that works in this type of infrastructure,â said Jay Murray, president and COO of Mid-Atlantic. âWe also needed a solution that would easily interface and integrate with our other systems.

Open Solutionsâ extensive experience working with corporate credit unions was also a significant deciding factor.

Collaboration during the annual client conference and regional meetings with other corporate credit unions was also important to Mid-Atlantic.
